Large black bird -Rook?

Large black bird with whopping great beak, I had to take the first two photos through the window so they aren't as clear as I hoped. I think it is a Rook. They have been spotted building a rookery high in the trees just a short walk from me. They sit in a tree and eye up my bird table and can fly off with large chunks of food. They can even cling onto the bird feeder only brieefly but long enough to get their beak into any fat balls I might put out and fly off with a beakful!
